Student Testimonials

What former WAIII students have to say about their experience with us:

WAIII is an amazing program, I honestly don’t know where I would be if it was not for their support and their guidance, they truly care about the whole person and meet you right where you are. Because of WAIII, I have been able to continue my educational journey and secure my future career.

S.S., ARC student

After submitting so many applications and being denied constantly, I began to question if my education was for nothing and that took a big toll on me. The support staff in WorkAbility understood my frustration and never gave up on me. Without the motivation and support that I received, I would have never been able to get the job that I currently have (program technician II with the State of California). This new job has offered me opportunities that I thought would have otherwise been an impossible task for me.
